About the property

'Our spacious and tasteful contemporary Beach house Retreat, is nestled amongst the trees, overlooking 'Cloudy Bay' in the heart of the famous Marlborough wine-growing region of New Zealand.

Relax, unwind and feel yourself completely 'chill-out' in our clean, comfortable, child free, non-allergenic space.

Breakfast is served in peaceful surroundings with amazing views looking over Cloudy Bay from Cape Campbell to the Marlborough Sounds. Chilled music ensures you depart relaxed.

Rarangi Retreat is luxurious accommodation in a separate and private guest wing, with it's own large private bathroom. Included with your accommodation, is a comfortable King-size bed and fresh Turkish cotton sheets.. We offer free Wifi, delicious healthy breakfast accompanied by our famous home-roasted coffee from our classic Italian Carimali Espresso coffee machine.

'Private 1-on-1 Yoga sessions and extended immersion Yoga Retreat courses are available by request (optional extra). Lee is an Internationally qualified Iyengar teacher with many years of International experience, and she loves to share her knowledge..

Rarangi Retreat has direct private access right onto the beach front. Wander for hours along the deserted driftwood-covered beach, or walk to Monkey Bay nearby. Watch the most amazing sunrises from our elevated decks or relax with a book and a glass of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

For Golf lovers, we are right across the road from Rarangi Golf course, Marlborough's Premier 18 Hole All Weather Golf Course. Productive salt-water fishing is available nearby at the Wairau river mouth, and the Wairau river is among the great trout (fresh-water) fishing rivers of this region.

We are a well-travelled, friendly and engaging couple with many years of professional hospitality in our charter-yacht hosting experience, and we look forward to sharing our stories, food and local knowledge with you.'

Marlborough is famous for its vineyards right on our doorstep. Take advantage of a pre-arranged wine tour, and visit a selection of the region's top wine producers. You can also map out your own route & self drive to explore your favourites or, get lost in the Sounds, amongst a maze of coves & peninsulas. Take a leisurely half-day walk up the Snout Track offering fantastic views over Picton or spend an hour or two rambling or riding over the Wither Hills for the most amazing views.
